I need to stop all of this partying!
We are back! Mama took a blogging break due to picking up extra hours at work. We are just fine, though–the weather is cooler so we have been extra snuggly. Mama handed out candy on Sunday, but the weather was bad and she only had about 20 Trick-Or-Treaters (no biggie–she has a lot of candy for herself now). She’s also excited because this is her favorite time of year; baking season has arrived! She’s already planning gingerbread men for the next weekend that she is off, so our place is going to smell wonderful!
Let’s see, what else? She went thrift store shopping a few weeks ago and scored a large wall shelf and a tripod for her camcorder, and both together cost less than $10. She has two days off this week, so she is going to decorate for autumn. She has a lot of red and gold leaf decorations and some squirrel figures. Maybe we can cajole her into letting us have a real live squirrel?
She was also at Petsmart last weekend and was looking at birdfeeders and bags of seed. We may be adding an enhanced birdie channel to our kitty cable!
Anyway, that’s all the new stuff we can think of right now. Have a great Tuesday!
Thanks for all of the great comments about yesterday’s post! Milwaukee has some very lovely areas, and mama wants to showcase them.
Back to our walk. Let’s see…
One of the great features about this park is the sheer size of it. It’s in the middle of a residential area on the southside of the city, but once you step in all you see is nature. (All of the pictures biggify)
This picture doesn’t do it justice.
Mama is a water person, so she really loves the two lagoons. This small one can be seen from the street.
Mama’s Michelin Man shadow. (she’s such a dork)
The park has a bandshell; during summer the county parks have a music program where they let bands play in it, but it was built in the Seventies and looks icky so we spared you.
Only a few greenspaces in the city allow dogs. Here’s one enjoying his day out (mama is a sucker for woofies in shirts/jackets/coats)
It was a cool and sunny day Tuesday on mama’s off day, so she went for a walk in Humboldt Park on the southside and took her camera with her (you will need to save this link as an MS Word File then open it) . The park she visited was one she hadn’t been to in many years. Back in the Dark Ages when she was a teenager, her family lived near it and she and her sister used to go there in the summer. She’s been dying to get some photos of fall colors to post and today was the perfect day for it.
Ready? Let’s go.
This is the entrance:
